Franklin American Mortgage Championship
Vanderbilt Legends Club, Franklin, Tennessee
May 13-16, 2004
Lorena Ochoa wins Debut LPGA Title
After finishing in the top ten in the previous two tournaments, including runner-up last week, Lorena Ochoa of Mexico broke through on Sunday to take her first LPGA title at the Franklin American Mortgage Championship. It was a memorable day for the Ochoa family as only hours before the start of play on Sunday, her 27 year-old brother reached the summit of Everest. Lorena duly followed up with a round of 68 to become the first Mexican to win an LPGA Tour event and complete the family double act.

Runner-up, Wendy Ward put the pressure on Ochoa by making eagle on the 18th to complete a round of 67 for a 15 under par total of 273 but Ochoa's par on the final hole was enough to secure a one shot victory. Her win moves her up into third place on the 2004 ADT Money List.
